Britblog Roundup 265 - Easter Edition
Still a bit light with my blogging. However as it's my turn to host the BBRU roundup don't want to let the team down. Not many nominations this week but it is supposed to be Easter weekend after all.
Thought we might at least see some nominations about Easter or trips out but the general buzz on the blogs is - The general election nearly here at last!

The court ruling injuncting RMT's strike of Network Rail signallers lays bare Britain's trade union legislation for what it is: a set of laws designed not to ensure justice but to stop workers fighting back against the employers' offensive.
Different schools of thought - Sergeant Smellie has been acquitted of assaulting a protester at the G20 after the key witness failed to show up at the trial. Jim Jay's post was nominated as 'An unsweet acquittal' but he writes The sweet aroma of justice
Ambulance reality Patients' groups expressed horror at the "sick experiment" in which NHS managers have agreed to pay £38 for every casualty that ambulance staff "keep out of Accident and Emergency" (A&E) departments after a 999 call has been made.

From Charles Crawford as usual, his diplomatic approach to all issues - World's Most Pathetic Islamist Forgery - Ever!
That is all for now. Hope you all enjoy the rest of the Easter break! May the fluffy bunnies deliver basketfuls of chocolate! Just had a call from my grandchildren telling me the have been on an Easter egg hunt - Now that brings back memories. Tuesday it's supposed to be back to normal.
